Securing sufficient and healthy food for all, while minimising environmental impact is the great challenge we face already today. Local production limits and global trade challenge equal access to food. With climate change increasingly affecting food production in areas, which are already disadvantaged, unprecedented population (especially in urban and coastal areas) and income growth and deterioration of usable land, these challenges will intensify. We need a holistic approach to transform the global food production system with the ability to adapt to regional necessities.
While the information on policies and technologies that would enhance productivity and sustainability of individual agricultural sectors is available to some extent, literature is practically devoid of information and experiences for countries and communities considering an integrated approach (cross-sectoral policies, strategies, and technologies) for food and nutrition security.
The overall aim of the SYSTEMIC project is to implement adaptive strategies for sustainable food production, consumption, and public health by addressing the diverse impact of climate change on nutrition quality and composition of food and defining standards to achieve food and nutrition security.
The project aims to address the challenges of the impacts of climate change on food systems and encourage healthy, environmentally sustainable diets.
